Effective social drama about a black teacher forming a bond with his white delinquent students in Swinging '60s London. Sidney Poitier is in top form as the idealistic educator striving to enlighten his class.

Though it is certainly sentimental, 'To Sir, With Love', with it's charismatic lead and excellent young cast, still manages to pluck a few heartstrings.

To Sidney, with the greatest respect

I just watched again this movie last night. It was just all perfect. I love to see Poitier's character upset and angry. He does it so well. Basically, what I believe, is that this move started the whole franchise of "Dangerous Minds" Stand and Deliver" crowd. I'm not great when it comes to movie history, but I just don'w know of a movie like this that proceded this.
Basically, it is about a Man, Sidney, who can't find work in his field so he takes the job of a teacher. His students are misbehaved deliquents. blah, blah ,blah he finds a way to get to them personally, the way he does it of course is a first also, and connect with the children and they learn to respect him, each other and importantly, themselves. Near the end of the movie, he gets a letter and it is a great job …
